To practice speaking in the past tense, use these questions as a starting point. Answer the question and continue speaking to tell a story or elaborate on your answer.
Example: What is something you accepted about yourself?
I accepted that I would never be liked by everyone I met. It is impossible to please everyone and still be your true authentic self. So as long as you trust yourself and put your best foot first, people will see your good qualities.
* In this list, all the -ed endings are pronounced with the “ed” sound, because of the “d or t” before the “ed,” e.g., accepted sounds like acceptED.
